Getting Here

Ramat Niseko is located in Hirafu Village approximately 150km away from Sapporo, the largest city on the island of Hokkaido (Japan).

By Air

The closest airport to Nisek’s affordable ski lodge is the Sapporo – Chitose Airport which is situated near Sapporo.


If you are flying internationally it is recommended to try and fly directly to Sapporo – Chitose Airport. This is because the Tokyo international airport, Narita, is 90 minutes away from the domestic airport, Haneda, where you catch most connecting flights to Sapporo. If you can’t avoid Tokyo please check with your travel agent regarding which airport you will be connecting to your domestic flight. JAL do offer some connecting flights to Sapporo from the Tokyo international airport.

We recommend travelling via Osaka if you can’t fly directly to Sapporo. Skymark Airlines, JAL, ANA, and Airdo are the domestic flight carriers in Japan.

From The Airport By Bus or Train

Getting here from Sapporo (New Chitose Airport) is best by bus or train.



This is the recommended method of getting to Niseko from the airport. The bus leaves directly from the airport and drops you in the middle of Niseko Grand Hirafu village (Welcome Centre) where you can call us to come and pick you up.



Train is the second best method of getting to Niseko (Kutchan Station is actually the closest station to the lodge).
